biodynamic craniosacral therapy

Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy is a subtle and profound healing form, it is gentle yet highly effective, working directly with the body’s natural capacity for self-repair to treat a wide range of conditions.

In a typical craniosacral session you will lie fully-clothed on a treatment couch. The therapist will make contact by placing her hands lightly on your body and tuning in to your system. You will usually notice a sense of deep relaxation which will generally last throughout the session. This release of tension often extends into everyday life. Craniosacral therapy is so gentle that it is suitable not only for adults, but also for babies, children and the elderly, as well as people in fragile or acutely painful conditions.

The therapy can address:

• physical aches and pains • acute and chronic disease • emotional or psychological disturbances or simply help to develop well-being, health and vitality.


Craniosacral therapy developed from the work of an American Osteopath, Dr William Sutherland in the early 1900s. He discovered intrinsic movements of the bones in the head and his further research revealed specific rhythms in the body. He observed that these movements are inextricably linked with physical, mental and emotional health and that restriction of these movements corresponds to a reduction of the natural capacity to self-heal. Using the hands to feel these movements allows Craniosacral therapists to facilitate change in areas of restriction. Craniosacral therapy has developed from clinical experience, which shows that health is something active and not just an absence of disease.

Craniosacral therapy supports health in the body. It helps increase physical vitality and well-being not only effecting structural change but also having much wider implications, emotionally and spiritually. The resulting increased sense of well-being can help with many aspects of life from strengthening the immune system to improving interpersonal relationship.
